A Few Things You Should Know About Our Providers

Dr.Miniyar’s Pediatrics, P.C.is a group practice of 10 plus providers covering four locations and providing services until 7:00 pm and on Saturdays. We can provide this extensive access and availability to Pediatric care only because we are a team of competent providers. Each provider is board certified and has excellent, extensive training from highly reputable institutes. Our team of providers bring more than 100 years of combined experience to our patients!
Even though we have several providers, they all share the same passion, the same vision, and follow the same practice protocol. We are on the same page. We are driven by the same practice motto, which is ” We Listen… We Care”, and guided by the same principle of compassion and caring. Most of the time you can choose the specific provider you would like to see. Just specify whom you would like to see when you make an appointment or tell the nurse who is taking care of you.We will do our best to honor this request. But please know that not all of our providers are available at all times at the same location. Sometimes they maybe off for family vacation, sickness, or personal things. No matter who you see, please be confident that you are in good hands and will receive excellent care!!!
